Casablanca

Directed by Michael Curtiz

1942

Casablanca, based on the unproduced stage play Everybody Comes to Rick’s, is a romantic drama set during the Second World War in the eponymous Vichy-controlled city. Casablanca lives up admirably to its reputation. It’s a tightly paced and memorable film open about its patriotic and romantic sentiments. Casablanca occasionally strains credulity and threatens to fall into melodrama or slapstick, but the film is easily saved by its essential sincerity and the quality of its acting.

Would see.
